“In those days, poverty and unemployment defined life in Purkal and the surrounding villages — especially after the factories were shut down. We lived on what little earnings cultivating our small pieces of land would bring. We tried to marry our girls off at younger ages, while alcoholism swallowed our men.”
— SATTESHWAR DANGWAL(93), DESCRIBING THE PURKAL OF OLD

When our founder, G. K. Swamy, noticed that underprivileged children in his rural community stood no chance in gaining employment next to their wealthier peers, he decided to do something about it.

He began an after-school tutoring program to supplement the education of four local children. Cattle sheds and garages were our gilded halls of learning, in the beginning.

The movement grew wings when, with the admirable support of many friends of the society, in the year 2008, the Society established a fully-equipped school.

Today, we provide mentorship, healthcare, nutrition, and an education of the highest order to children who would otherwise never have gotten it.
